Lev Grossman is the author of the New York Times bestselling novels The Magicians and The Magician King. The third book in the trilogy, The Magician's Land, will be published in August 2014. The New Yorker named The Magicians as one of the best books of 2009. In 2011 Grossman was awarded the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer by the World Science Fiction Society.

Grossman is also the book critic at Time magazine, and he has written about books and technology for the New York Times, Salon, the Wall Street Journal, Wired, Lingua Franca, the Village Voice and the Believer, as well as NPR.

He lives in Brooklyn with his wife and three children. He's 43, slightly built and probably wouldn't last long in a post-apocalyptic, eye-for-an-eye world.

Going back and forth between the books in this series and the TV show has been interesting for me. So far, I've watched season one, listened to the first book, watched season two, and listened to the second book. After the first book, one of the things that struck me is how much more time is cover...

This is not 'The Magicians'. This book falls squarely into the tradition of disaffected youngsters flailing about after adulthood sets in and trying to find some kind of meaning to it all. One of these youngsters, obviously, is more precious than the rest and it is his journey that we follow.Hmm, th...
